Contrast – Black & Silver against Red

blacklace-agapee-1

Again Blacklace released an amazing ensemble of panties, bra, stockings, garter belt and this time even boots!

With my addiction for over knee boots I could not pass that one ๐Ÿ˜‰

blacklace-agapee-5

Again I tried to think about something to mix and match lingerie with something else to not again have a typical lingerie post (even if i will have soon one like that again since Blacklace does release so many amazing things *grins*)

When I was looking through my inventory what I could use today, a box was thrown against my head. Sora Tatham – owner and designer for agapee – a long time friend of mine sent me her newest release. The “Kelly Shirt” by agapee was the perfect addition to the “Anita” set from Blacklace.

With the open, loosely wrapped down front it was perfect for showcasing lingerie and the length was just right to let the garters peeking out under it :p

blacklace-agapee-3

I love several kinds of contrasts and so I thought about something black and silver highlighted just with one color, which I wanted to put on the lips, the hair and the nails.

Contrasts can be done in so many ways. colors, opposite things, things that do not belong together at all usually…and so many more.

The way how the comic Sin City is done always inspires me, when it comes to highlights and contrasts in colors.

So for the hair I chose the “No.Case” hairstyle from no.match. In a red shade it was just perfect to the light red lip gloss and the red finger nails from Nailed It.

The scenery again was built mainly with designs from E.V.E Studio. The awesome “Ivy Trees M02” paired with parts of the “Broken Chains” set, that as well includes the amazing choker with the long chains in the back of the neck.

All the poses I used for this post come from Del May. I really do enjoy their unusual poses and I rarely found a pose store, that has those kind of poses before.. but a few days ago… I found another! Not yet saying which one, but soon I will have a post about it, I promise ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 04/19/2016 – Weird Mood

GizzA-Elysium 1

Yesterday I was in a very weird mood, when I put together the look for my GizzA shift. It was not a bad nor a good mood… it was just weird.

Do you know that moments where you kinda feel nothing – real nothing? It is a very strange and good feeling the same time. Hard to explain but if you ever had that you will exactly know what I am talking about ๐Ÿ˜‰

In such moments it is very dangerous for me to style. As I never know what the outcome will be… will it be a great funky look or will I look like a clown…

That is, why I always let one day go by and look at it again t make sure it looks ok :p

GizzA-Elysium 6

I started with the new “Joanna Laced Dress” from GizzA. A short, cute and amazing short mesh dress, which comes in several colors and patterns. What I liked a lot, was that the dress was not just made with a deep neckline in the back, but had those laces as a neat decoration what made it outstanding to me already. I decided for the ‘Red Floral’ version for today’s post. I was thinking a long time, what I could do with it. I did not want to make a too casual and common spring look, as I saw that already a lot of times for this dress.

I was looking into my ‘Shoulder Parts’ folder and found the cool “Epaulette Set” as well made by GizzA. They are not a new release but more and more I discovered that ‘old time goodies’ are still worth to be kept for several stylings :p

GizzA-Elysium 2

ย The “Epaulette Set” comes with both shoulder pieces and an amazing mixture of chains and pearls as a necklace to connect both parts. I used the white version for today but there are many different colors available at the GizzA main store.

For arms and legs I wanted something not too heavy, but as well nothing too simple.

GizzA-Elysium 5

The “Lovana” heels from Stelloane just perfectly worked for what I was aiming for.

With the cute laces wrapped around the whole leg, it was not just pups or sandals but as well not heavy, totally covering boots ๐Ÿ˜‰

The arm pieces from the “Bonfire” outfit from Edelfabrik perfectly complimented the shows for the overall look.

I know I used the “Sidsel Hat” before, but I just love it so much, that I had to use it one more time ๐Ÿ˜‰ To me that added a light touch of an artist look as I saw many painter RP with such hats… I know weird thoughts but sometimes… like I said it in the beginning… I am in a strange mood anyways atm ๐Ÿ™‚

Sunny Day with *agapee* & Eclipse

agapee 1

The sun comes out more and more and I just had to do another Spring post today ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was experimenting some more with my new mesh head I got, but to be honest I did not yet found anything new. So I will focus on the amazing dress, which I got from *agapee* andย  the cool boots made by Eclipse.

agapee 5

The amazing “Jean Outfit” is a real spring ensemble. With the sweet long-sleeved top, decorated by that little scarf, and the wonderful belted skirt with the delicate lace part in the front, it is perfect for the first warm sun beams.

The outfit comes with a HUD to change the colors of the short and the scarf to 6 different ones, so that you can customize the whole outfit perfectly to your very own likings.

agapee 2

The super cute hairstyle comes from Truth and was made for the actual round of The Fantasy Collective.

For the pictures, I wanted something sweet and modern, to complement the outfit itself. When I was lately doing some sim hopping, I discovered a residential sim called “Mataiva”. The name for the place is “The Iconic Spell”.

“The Ionic Spell is what remains of a little village devastated by a large solar storm.. For 10 years the people have lived without electricity and looked for ways to restore the light.The community is close and we must stick together to find the answer”

That is the description which I found in the sim description field. On the first view you won’t see the destructions, as most of the sim look like, as if the residents have rebuilt it, but some corners still show the basic idea. It is a fantastic place to walk around and enjoy the love to the detail, the people put in here to create this wonderful little world.

I am sure I will return to this awesome place to discover some more interesting corners for future pics and posts ๐Ÿ˜‰

LOTD 02/02/2016 – Clubbing

Clubbing 3

A few days ago, I was fooling around with my inventory. I did not sort it for a longer time and was unpacking boxes and sorting in some stuff.

All of a sudden I came across the “Plume” jacket from E-Clipse. I got that at the last On9 event. I was looking at it and already got some very different ideas for it. But then I kept sorting stuff, tried different boxes back and forth and got distracted again from my original ideas.

Clubbing 6

One boxย  said “Bay High-Waist” pants from [R3]. Knowing R3volt, it must be super cool looking pants, even if I did not remember yet, what they looked like or when I got them*hides*

I unpacked the box and put them on and… bingo! They looked perfect and put a totally different look on the jacket than i was originally going for. But sometimes you just have to listen to your guts and I decided to go by them for today’s look.

Clubbing 5

The “Vertigo” boots from [sys] were the perfect addition to the look. The smart flat boots with the open laces totally caught the mood I was going for.ย  With a little bit of tweaking work, the shoes even did fit over the mesh pants what is really rare these days. As well from [sys], are the sunglasses is used for this post. The “Monaco” sunglasses come with a HUD to customize them to your needs and with the light retro feeling they rocked the look.

Clubbing 1

Last but not least, to get the real clubbing feeling I put on the “Miwa” headphones made my Wicca’s Wardrobe. The cool headphones with the skulls and spine bones are the perfect accessory for every clubbing night or even for DJs for their work ๐Ÿ˜‰ With a huge HUD you can customize the colors in every single part.

LOTD 08/11/2015 – Back to the 80s?

Gabriel 001aI can not deny it… I am a child of the 80 somehow.

Born in 1977 I am basically too young to have experienced the 80s fashion myself a lot, but it was the time when I grew up and I still love the style of that time.

The 80s to me kinda show a fashion rebellion and as well I think that the 80s fashion made the way for what we call fashion nowadays.

Gabriel 002aWhen I put on the Emma Dress from Gabriel, I immediately fell in love and back to the 80s*giggles. Even if that dress matches a modern styling as well with the red and black and the shape of the dress I so saw Cyndi Lauper or Whitney Houston wearing it :p

The short dress with a kind of wrapped look, where the red overlays the black fabric, the neat belt, it just screamed 80s at me ๐Ÿ˜‰

The back of the “Emma” dress holds a very sexy secret as well ๐Ÿ˜‰ You have a small gap between top and skirt that gives a very naughty view on your lower back*rawr*

Gabriel 004aI added the “Khalessi” bracelets from [sys] and some heavy boots from [GOS], tp even more go towards the 80s look.

The amazing hair, which is connected to the hat comes from Ayashi and just was the perfect addition for that look. Certainly I needed a cool tattoo too and what can be better than one of my beloved White Widow tattoos!

Julie did it again and made a wonderful and as well sexy looking tattoo, that goes over the whole body and even down the hands, plus it even has a wonderful painted garter looking ornament at the left leg. The “Music Box” tattoo is available in theย  3 different colors and I chose the ‘Dark’ version for this post.

The fabulous nail polish was made by Giela Delpaso for Nailed It!

Ascension

Mantis Oh 002

Explore the seven levels of the Ascension tower and lose yourself in a mysterious world where musical notes appear from under your feet, robotic bumblebees hover close by and particles shimmer in the alien atmosphere.

Create your own music alone or with friends by jumping on the glowing sound pads and solve riddles under the illuminated eyes of the mantis sphinx!

Sound is important to the Ascension experience, so make sure your local sounds are on and walk through the whole sim to discover mystical places and secret trails.

Created by Mantis Oh (Cari Lekebusch in RL) you can also look forward to a schedule of Techno music events and DJ sets from RL record label H-Productions.

Itโ€™s time to ascendโ€ฆ

Mantis Oh 001

With this words I made my way to the Ascension sim, that was buited on LEA 16 by Mantis Oh. Mantis Oh is well known for futuristic environments and objects in SL. “Ascension is a fun and immersive experience that can only be found in virtual worlds. It is a build based on the intuition and actions of each individual visitor and encourages collective consciousness and social interaction through a range of sound displays, visuals and futuristic objects.”, the official press release says and I have to say, I was not dissapointed after I explored the sim, looked tried all of the great installations and saw all this amazing buildings. The Ascension sim is really worth a trip. Do not wait too long as it will be only available till the end of May.

That was not all as Persia told me, that he not only builted that amazing sims and arranged all that great DJ events, Mantis Oh as well creates prefab homes and … what really caught my attention, he creates wonderful futuristic acessories. The “MartialArts Armguards”, the “Martial Arts Waistguard”and the “Third Eye Tiara” headpiece are made by Mantis Oh, owner and creator of Hybrid Productions. All of his pieces are incredible detailed and you can only imagine how long Mantis sit and worked on them. The belt with the ornaments and the to little bags where you can put bottles or what ever in are as well great for a fantastic roleplay ๐Ÿ˜‰ But for me it is a wonderful fashion accessory, as O really love to experiment with futuristic ideas ;).ย  The “Third Eye Tiara” reminded me of the ‘Visor’ ofย Lieutenant Commander Georgdi Laforge of the Star Trek – The next generation movies and so it was clear I had to do a post about something futuristic ๐Ÿ˜‰ The armparts and the belt as well have little glowing effects, that are not static. There is many more awesome creations of Mantis Oh at the Hybrid Productions Mainstore and I am sure this is not my last post about them ๐Ÿ˜‰

Mantis Oh 003

I thought for a longertime about a cool styling for the “Outland” from [sys], that is sold at the 100 Block event. The cool blue & black pants outfit perfectly goes together with the acessories from Hybrid Productions. The top has a very sexy touch at it looks like it would be sheet while it is totally opaque. The pants are mesh made and very modern with the loose style. The “Vouge” shoes are as well from [sys] and made the perfect addition to the whole look.

So I only had to find the right jewelry and hair. For the jewelry I remembered that Sora Tatham, one of the genius designers of Gabriel, gave me a wonderful mesh set. She said the “Curb Chain” set would be her first try for mesh jewelry and I was totally amazed as I put it on. The jewelry comes with a HUD that lets you chnage the texture of the jewelry to 3 different colors. The hair comes from EMO-tions. I loved the way how the mohawk looks lightly ‘messy’ at the ends and the wonderful made braids that are covering the head. A nice mixture of different hairstyles together on one ๐Ÿ˜‰

So… itโ€™s time to ascendโ€ฆ ๐Ÿ˜‰
